Fargo native Irmen makes NHL debut

ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Wild recalled right wing Danny Irmen on Wednesday from their farm team.

Irmen, a native of Fargo, was playing for Houston in the AHL. The

25-year-old has six goals, including two game-winners, and four assists in 17 games for the Aeros this season.

On Wednesday night, Irmen made his NHL debut as Minnesota hosted the Phoenix Coyotes at Xcel Energy Center. He played 5 minutes, 28 seconds and didn’t record a point in the Wild’s 3-2 loss.

The former University of Minnesota star, who played high school hockey at Fargo North and Grand Forks Red River, was a third-round draft pick by the Wild in 2003. He has not appeared in an NHL game.

The Wild are missing several injured forwards, including Chuck Kobasew, Benoit Pouliot, Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Petr Sykora.
